Beschreibung

Hardcover, in orange cloth with gilt lettering. 174 pages. Very small, faint spot on each of last three leaves. Small clipping (about ½ by 2 inches) pasted to front free endpaper (about the book), with a date written in above it. And pages 37 and 38 each have another small clipping taped to them, with a wide piece of clear tape. All have to do with Morrison. Otherwise the contents are clean and tight. The gilt on the cover and spine seems worn. There is a faint stain on each cover, as well, barely darker than the cover color, and about 1 by 2 inches at the top of the rear cover, about one inch by ¼ inch on the lower edge of the front cover. The bright, unworn, untorn dustjacket is price-clipped, and has a dustjacket protector pretty well taped along each edge to the jacket so that it would be impractical at best to try to remove it.

Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

First published in 1974, this novel by a Nobel Prize-winner is set in a small town community in Ohio. Two black girls share their secrets and girlhood dreams until Sula escapes to a vagrant city life for ten years. When she returns, the bond of their friendship is broken.

Review:

In Sula, Toni Morrison, winner of the 1993 Nobel Prize for literature, tells the story of two women--friends since childhood, separated in young adulthood, and reunited as grown women. Nel Wright grows up to become a wife and mother, happy to remain in her hometown of Medallion, Ohio. Sula Peace leaves Medallion to experience college, men, and life in the big city, an exceptional choice for a black woman to make in the late 1920s.

As girls, Nel and Sula are the best of friends, only children who find in each other a kindred spirit to share in each girl's loneliness and imagination. When they meet again as adults, it's clear that Nel has chosen a life of acceptance and accommodation, while Sula must fight to defend her seemingly unconventional choices and beliefs. But regardless of the physical and emotional distance that threatens this extraordinary friendship, the bond between the women remains unbreakable: "Her old friend had come home.... Sula, whose past she had lived through and with whom the present was a constant sharing of perceptions. Talking to Sula had always been a conversation with herself."

Lyrical and gripping, Sula is an honest look at the power of friendship amid a backdrop of family, love, race, and the human condition. --Gisele Toueg
